Clive Robertson is a media artist, curator, and cultural critic who teaches Art History, Cultural Policy, and Performance Studies at Queen’s University, Kingston.

This anthology is a valuable resource for working artists, arts administrators and policy-makers, and as a research tool for educators and students of cultural studies. Policy Matters demonstrates the significant political investments that artists, individually and through artist-run centres, collectives, umbrella associations and other formations have made and continue to make to arts policy.
